Thursday, 8 February 2018 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

For a number of years, Friends of the Earth's Leigh Ewbank was lead co-ordinator for the Yes2Renewables campaign in the state of Victoria, and currently he heads up another state-wide campaign called Act On Climate. Right from the start, he’s been at the forefront of launching Friends of the Earth’s environmental campaign work onto the social media platform of Twitter. In this edition of Communication Mixdown, Leigh explains how and why.



Thursday 6:00pm to 6:30pm
This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
